Disguised?


This most certainly is one of those moments where you stretch back in your chair and smile. I don't know that this is the worst disguise ever, but it has to be close. If you could send people to jail for being hopelessly stupid then these two gentlemen, Matthew McNelly and Joey Miller, might just get the nod.

They tried to break into an apartment complex and failed. There are lots of people who try to commit crimes and do not succeed. However, I am not sure I have ever heard of anyone drawing on their own disguise with a marking pen. Yet, the icing on this cake is that it was a permanent marker.

My experience with permanent markers is that if they get on your skin then they are really difficult to get off. So, to colour in your face with a permanent marker is absurd, absurdly funny that is.

The excuse for the embarrassment is likely to be that they were drinking heavily and were intoxicated. Yep, the last time I had a few beers though, I do not recall hatching a plan to burglarize a place and disguise my face with a Zorro mask inked on in permanent black marker.

Apparently "comet" works the best for getting out those annoying felt marker stains. So I have been reliably informed by an acquaintance who happenned to fall asleep at a high school party.

PJ...

I will see if I can pass on your tid bit of valuable information :D

I guess there is a difference between getting yourself into a situation where your "mates" color in your face and you doing it yourself with the view to committing a crime...

Reminds me of a couple of Indonesian fellas who decided to get their faces tattooed in order to join the civil service and go under cover or something to that end.

Rob,

Maybe they drank too much whiskey at a Halloween party that they can't find their way home.

Apparently they did, drink too much, that is.
